While fans are awaiting the release of Game of Thrones, it seems the All Progressive Congress[APC] are playing out what seems to be a spin-off of the show. A day after Nigeria’s independence celebration, 2 October 2018 will mark an eventful day for APC as they decided who will fly their banner in Lagos state 2019 Gubernatorial elections.
The political party has had a tumultuous season with ‘fallouts’ and supporters changing candidates quicker than a hen picks on pebbles.
The incumbent Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode contested amid rumours of a fallout with his ‘mentor’. The party showed their displeasure and disinterest in having him as their flag bearer and crowned Baba Jide Sanwolu instead.
The Nigerian political season is heralding that winter is coming. All wolves must stick to the pack because the lone wolf…!

If a failure like Aregbesola got a second term, why shouldn’t Ambode who did a lot in Lagos get a second term.

The result of Ambode vs Babajide Sanwo-Olu in #LagosAPCPrimaries reminds me of what they told us about Nigeria vs India 99-1 game

The party has chosen a man and it is that man that I will support and follow,” says Lagos deputy governor, Idiat Adebule, as she dumps Akinwunmi Ambode for Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Indeed failure is an orphan#APCLagosPrimaries #LagosAPCPrimaries
